Full Point of View Ride Video of InvadR Released

Set to open to visitors on April 7th, many fans of Busch Gardens Williamsburg are anxious to take their first spin on InvadR, a brand new wooden roller coaster.

To make the time go faster before the opening date, the theme park has released a new point of view video of the ride:

The video was filmed during recent test runs of InvadR, and shows off the zippy family-friendly ride.  The coaster uses the landscape of the park to its full advantage, something that can really be seen in this video.  Fans will also note the recently announced tunnel on part of the first drop, leading down to another covered tunnel at the bottom of the plunge.

InvadR features a 74 foot first drop that sends the trains at a speed of 48 miles per hour over the 2,218 feet of track.  The video shows that the coaster's trains, which came from sister park Busch Gardens Tampa where they were used on Gwazi, keep their speed throughout the ride and even into the final turn.

Looks like InvadR will be a great ride, perfect for families to ride together!
